    Cardiff City vs. Norwich: An Alternative Preview

    Probably Lineups:

    norwichCardiff City (4-4-1-1): Marshall, Théophile-Catherine, Caulker, Hudson, McNaught, Noone, Medel, Whittingham, Bellamy, Eikrem, Campbell

    Sitting at the bottom of the Premier League, Cardiff have a decent run of fixtures to turn things around starting with Norwich at home. Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should revert back to a 4-4-1-1 for this game but will be without Jordan Mutch who suffered an injury in their 2-0 loss against Manchester United.

    Norwich (4-4-2): Ruddy, Martin, R Bennett, Bassong, Olsson, Snodgrass, Fer, Tettey, Gutiérrez, van Wolfswinkel, Hooper

    Jonas Gutiérrez is set to return to the left side of midfield after being ineligible to play parent-club Newcastle United.  The Canaries sit in mid-table, but know that they are far from safe from being pulled into the relegation battle and a trip to the league’s bottom club will give them the chance to further the distance.

    What the fans are saying…

    Remember this?

    The Norwich vs Cardiff clash earlier this season had a very controversial goal disallowed.  Here is the incident.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    f campbell

    Fraizer Campbell seems to have the habit of scoring against the bigger clubs, with three goals against former club Manchester United and one against Manchester City.  Priced at only 5.2 in the Official Fantasy Football Game, and with a good run of fixtures ahead, the young striker must produce against the smaller sides starting now.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Cardiff have won just one of their last six Barclays Premier League home games (W1 D2 L3).

    Norwich have won just one of their last eight Barclays Premier League away games (W1 D2 L5).

    12 of Cardiff’s 18 Premier League points this season have been secured at home.

    Cardiff have lost four PL games in a row, only Hull are on as long a losing run currently.

    Eight of Norwich’s last nine Premier League games have seen fewer than three goals scored.

    Ricky van Wolfswinkel is now without a goal in 15 games (all competitions) for Norwich City.

    Two of Norwich’s three Premier League games in February last season ended 0-0.

    Steven Caulker has blocked more opposition shots than any other player in the Premier League this season (34).

    Leroy Fer has conceded 41 fouls this season, only Chelsea’s Ramires (44) has been penalised more often.

    This game pitches together the two goalkeepers to have conceded the most goals this season (Marshall 39 & Ruddy 35).
